Finished my little pumpkin quilt on the weekend. And I love it! It's not a great picture but I didn't have time to try again! And it's even on the wall already! It's gotta be a record!
Now to decide on a new one to replace this one in a few weeks! I've made 100s of quilts over the years, but they've all been sold or gifted other than one on my bed and one other little wall hanging that hangs by my back door. So I'm on a mission! I want to fill my home with quilts! I love seeing all of the decorating with quilts posted on other blogs and I've wished to do the same for myself for years but just haven't taken the time. Well, hopefully I'm gonna change that! Any suggestions for a November quilt? Remember I'm in Canada and we celebrated Thanksgiving earlier in October.
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
